In Their Own Words

"[I want students] to gain the technical and musical skills to successfully interpret and perform songs in various genres of music."

I have sung, danced, acted, choreographed, and arranged for musicals and shows in the U.S. and Europe for over 20 years. I will impart all the knowledge I have gained through these experiences to teach my students to do the same."
